‘I Can’t Go Back To Yesterday Because I Was A Different Person Then’ – Alice in Wonderland. (Lavish Alice Jumpsuit)

WildAtHeart_flowersAlice in Wonderland is one of my favourite books for the wealth of meaning (and more hidden meaning) within the text.  Themes of dreaming, life as a meaningless puzzle and the manipulation of language all tie in with the everyday themes I am presented with in my work as a psychologist.  The book is a fabulous read for children or adults alike, so if you haven’t yet read Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, be sure to find yourself a copy to immerse yourself in.

On to another Alice, Lavish Alice, whose AW14 collection contains some great budget buys for your party season, from sleek black jumpsuits (which I am wearing in this post) to dresses full of sequins and sparkle. Even if you are not shopping for holiday clothing, Lavish Alice have several minimal and sleek styles within their collection, perfect for day-to-night wear, such as their crossover bralet dress and their culotte crossover crop jumpsuit.

A youthful brand, also selling accessories and Jeffery Campbell shoes, this is one rabbit hole of a website that you can certainly get lost in a while. To view the entire collection, click HERE.

LavishAlice-playsuit-1A relatively new brand, previously taken on by TopShop and currently at ASOS (a sure sign of the brand’s popularity in the contemporary fashion sphere) Lavish Alice boasts a cute and vibrant summer collection of playsuits, rompers, crop tops and circle skirts.  Peachy and cream tones, playful dark florals and thick scuba fabrics result in a disparate but cheerful range of styles that reminds me of the rather fun phrase: “how puzzling all these changes are! I’m never sure what I’m going to be, from one minute to another” from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. 

This pinafore playsuit reminds me of my childhood and fun summer afternoons in my parent’s garden sitting out on sun loungers with my friends and games with our cute west highland white terrier puppy.  It is true that you can grow up but never grow old, although like the famous book says: “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
